Hi, this is a two fold deal and only available for students via studentbeans. Sorry if you cant get this. Lenovo are offering 20% (+10% with newsletter signup - total 30%) discount across various products on their site including graphics cards. The NVIDIA P4000 8GB caught my eye. Its not a gaming card. Its designed for creative professionals. They retail for over £800. I've paired this with the razer core x egpu. Also available through student beans for a 5% discount. (Circa £250). Its a lot of money but felt it was a good deal. If your using an egpu you'll need a thunderbolt 3 port on your laptop. The reason I bought the p4000 because it's the cheapest compatible quadro card that can be used with the razer egpu. Quadro is like the royal Royce of professional graphic cards. You could get cheaper with Radeon Pro Cards but my experience with them hasn't been so good.

Is this a single bay card? If so my experience with the razer core X and the quadro k4200 I’ve got is that it does sit well inside the core x even using a spare face plate cover as well.

Good deal for under £600
I was looking at this and ended up with a 1070 for AutoCAD & Revit. Never had an issue with it and not sure what you'd get for the extra £300. From what I was reading, they were quite similar, and if you wanted, you could SLI the 1070 for more power at the same price.

We use Gtx 1030's at our office for Autocad and Revit and even that is probably overkill as I've run both on my Fanless laptop with integrated graphics and Autocad was just fine, Revit was a bit choppy admittedly, but cant see any reason why it wouldn't run perfectly a i7 laptop with integrated graphics.

Are they of any use to Architects/Engineers or are they just for automotive/research purposes??

Done a bit of searching and seems this P4000 is a 3 year old, and depending on your particular software needs could be bested by cards costing half it's price

I wouldn't recommend this for students. The high price is for professionals who are also paying £££ for software as well. Students with free Autodesk software will not be disappointed in using a cheaper card.
I've signed up for their newsletter but not had the 10% code yet. Is it unique to your account, or could you share it?
Its unique. It had taken 2 days for my code to arrive.

Ah, yes. Just got mine. Thanks
I bought the xfx rx 5700 recently on advise as it's for solidworks and general use/gaming. Not too fond of it as use a 1080 at the moment on another pc.

I would prefer to bring the 1080 for solidworks but people say it's no good.

So a 1080 would work for solidworks? Or is that more demanding? This is for a uni student

Solidworks ran fine on Intel integrated graphics on my laptop for me when I did my PhD.

How long ago was that?

10 years or so. But the general requirements for Solidworks are the same now as they've always been- fastest single-core performance CPU (fewer, faster cores better than lots of cores), lots of RAM and a decent SSD are far more important than a top GPU. Even more so for the kind of models a student will be building. Build well in Solidworks and even low-end hardware will fly (except maybe when rendering). Build badly without properly planning your models and performance will suffer even on top-spec hardware.
